look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Bottle dated 010616. Poured into a chalice. Pours dark brown with sediment and a quickly dissipating tan head. The head dissipates, leaving some lacing around the edge of the glass and on top. Aromas of dark roasted malts, toffee, fig, plum and alcohol hit the nose. Some of these aromas are even noticeable right after you remove the bottle cap.

The flavor profile is of toffee, dark fruits like fig, plum, and dates, yeast, dark roasted malts, and the alcohol. The alcohol taste is still well hidden. The mouthfeel is full with moderate carbonation. While it is slightly creamy, it is also smooth thanks to the carbonation. This is a sipper, but it's easier to drink that some sippers.

Overall, this is one of the best quads if not one of the best beers I've ever had. It's one I would recommend to anyone who wishes to be exposed to quads. This is easily world class.

Bottle Code "220616, 10:23"

Poured into a Lion Stout tulip glass, at cellar temperature of 55-degrees Fahrenheit, which seemed to be the perfect temperature.

Be forewarned when pouring this! I initially poured about a 5-finger head. I'd advise a slow pour to start, down the side of the glass, rather than straight into the bottom as I did at the start. The head sticks around forever and takes a long time to drop.

This has an intoxicating nose, and I'm not referring to the 11.3% alcohol. Like a dark bread, made with molasses. Raisins, figs, and a bit of dark fruit all come through as well. Also some toffee and caramel. A little malty sweetness and viscosity in the middle, yet if finishes with a bit of crispness. Medium-full bodied, with a fairly dry finish.

This was absolutely amazing after dinner, and was the perfect nightcap. I slowly enjoyed every last sip of this.

Recommended, without hesitation, this is possibly the best Quad I've had to date. Certainly a benchmark Belgian Quad.

I have one more in the cellar and would like to age it for a while. I'll definitely be buying a few more of these.

4/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Chocolate brown color. Weak head that completely disappears without a trace of lacing.

Complex aroma of raisins, dates, wheat bread and toffee. Plenty of alcohol to excite the nostrils.

Flavor is sweet overall with a dark fruit character. Reminiscent of dates, figs, apple cider, toffee and molasses. No hop character to be found. Alcohol sneeks in with a warm, spicy character.

Medium-full bodied with a light, dry finish from the alcohol. Smooth texture and good carbonation for such a strong beer. Even after 40-50 minutes of sitting, there are still plenty of small bubbles left to tickle the tongue.

Pretty complex beer. Lots of interesting flavors. Definitely gets better as it warms. I would recommend serving at 50-55 F. Good stuff.

Poured out into a snifter, it was covered with a thick light tan head that stuck around for quite a while and produces a nice thick lacing. The body itself is a nice dark amber-brownish color and has some medium (mild) carbonation. You can detect some dark fruits and spices in this beer. Some mild phenol aromas are present too. It’s nice crisp when it first hits your tongue, and really envelopes your mouth with a thick warm feeling. I can pick up some fig and raisin flavors along with some mild citrus fruits like grapefruit. It has a very good aftertaste with some strong alcohol flavors. Over all this is a very good beer and I look forward to drinking it again.

4.6/5  rDev +2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark amber, with a thick, pillowy tan head that took ages to recede, despite the high alcohol presence.

Smell: Apples. Call me crazy, but I smell apples here, kinda reminiscent of Delirium Nocturnum. Faint rum raisin undertones. Wisp-like traces of V8.

Taste: Oh. My. Goodness. Sweet enough to make your dentist slap you. Malty as heck; you might be tempted to market this as a health food supplement. This is a clinic on how to hide high ABV; be warned, it's as easy to drink as table beer. Nice brandy-soaked fruit finish.

Mouthfeel: Docking it a bit because it's not creamy as some reviews have said it is, yet keeping it high because it's still really darn good. Think Remy Martin.

Overall: You're still reading? Get this beer!
